No sense in being hostile. Yes, it was a bad idea to keep a live, gnawing, dangerous rodent in with a snake but unless you explain things to people they'll never learn. Rodents quickly can turn from prey to predator I have witnessed many mice and rats that chewed snakes up, sometimes fatally, if left unchecked even overnight. Next time if you offer your snake food and it doesn't eat remove it in a couple hours and keep it in a separate tank with food and water. Re-offer the rodent a couple days later when your snake may be hungry. Snakes along with most other animals do not make friends. They are purely instinctual, by not killing the rat your snake was simply not hungry.
